China Wide Web is a nation-wide on-line information service based in the Chinese language, utilising state of the art Internet and Intranet technology to deliver the latest sought-after information and exclusive market intelligence to targeted subscribers. It is used by businesses and private users in China mainly through the China Digital Data Network (ChinaDDN) and broadband accesses ensuring fast accessibility and reliability. It is important to realise that not only are computers in China loaded with Chinese operating systems but also the majority of Chinese people can only or prefer using the Chinese language. Moreover, the same written Chinese solves the problem of many different spoken dialects such as Cantonese because Chinese people in all parts of China understand the same written characters.
Chinapages.com was the first and remains the largest business information web site in China. It was developed and launched in 1995 by DIFE Communications which was part of China Telecom - the biggest commercial undertaking of China's Ministry of Information Industry, in a joint venture with HOPE Information Service Corporation - the leading provider of Internet technology and business information in China.
